Boy, TQT has way more obscure lyrics, these are very straight forward. Well done too.

LOL. I noticed that the snake(s) in the logo are no longer bound in chains. This is a cool album cover though. Medusa is kind of hot.

Thanks to the good people who took the time to explain the lyrics. I was specifically having trouble with:

Stare into her eyes – you’re free
Free for all eternity
Gazing at Medusa

apparently I was reading this as “gazing at medusa makes you free” but folks have clarified that instead BECAUSE you are free, you can gaze at medusa and live.

We're excited to announce that virtuoso guitarist Chris Poland (Ex-Megadeth, OHM) will play leads on the entire upcoming Tourniquet album "Gazing at Medusa". "Chris' talent is so impressive. We can't wait to hear what he lays down on these tunes!" says Ted. Chris will have his leads completed by mid July at the latest.

That's cool but does it mean Aaron will not play any leads on the album?

What is the ETA of the album and who will be doing vocals? 90% of the backer updates have been nothing but SPAM sales pitches for discounted albums.  Getting a little old and drawn out.

Yes. On Microscopic and many other albums. He even played one on Onward to Freedom.

It took two years to get one song.  By that math, assume another 18 years?

Aaron has done a lot of leads. See the lyrics on Antiseptic Bloodbath for his work on that album. He did all the leads on MVTR (except for one small part on one song). He handled most of the leads on Crawl, too.

Since the leads wont be finished until next month, the album probably wont be out until the end of the year.

Posted today (June 29)

Guitarist Chris Poland (ex-Megadeth, OHM) has just completed all his leads for the upcoming Tourniquet album "Gazing at Medusa." I can assure you - his playing is insane and stands amongst the most awesome guitar playing in the history of Tourniquet. Seriously, what planet is this guy from? - Ted

Posted today (July 25):

We're excited to announce that Tim Ripper Owens will be doing the vocals for the entire rest of the upcoming "Gazing at Medusa" album. Tim's phenomenal vocal talent is well established, and we have no doubt he will make the tunes sound awesome. Of course, his abilities were noticed by other iconic bands, as he became the voice for Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Yngwie Malmsteen, and others. Vocals should be done by mid-August. Looking for a late September release!

Good to know. As Ted invited many famous artists for this album, I hope it gets the proper attention it deserves.

From the title track, I am assuming the whole album is going to be killer.

I'm assuming this is a hired out album then? I can't imagine Tim being full-time for Tourniquet. They won't find someone like him to sing live either. This is now merely a one-time project and like an all-star solo album. I thought when they searched for a vocalist that this possibly could become a real band again. It seems even less like a band than ever.

All that said, I'm glad it'll probably be a great album. Wish this was the beginning of a new era.

I'm happy that it's just one vocalist (okay, 2, but Deen is only singing on one track).  I'm never keen on multiple vocalist, as that generally means I won't like all of the songs, because I won't like all of the vocalists.  However, Tim and Deen both sound great!  As long as there's not too many animal songs I'll be happily waving my money at them.

Kickstarter backers deserve to get it before the general public. I'm sick of supporting projects and getting my product at the same time as everyone else, even after I paid more for it. This is a big reason why I'll probably never do another Kickstarter for a product that I know will be available to the general public when it's released.

Agreed.  I backed this too.  At this point we backed it so long ago that I'll be happy with anything period, regardless of who else gets it at the same time.

In general, any backer for any project should get SOMETHING extra.  Not music - but something.  Autographed copy?  MUCH earlier release?

I did one Kickstarter where the stores and people at the shows were getting their CDs an entire MONTH before the backers got theirs.  It is safe to assume that I won't do another fan funding project with this particular band.  If I have a good experience, I support the artists multiple times (like Bride or Disciple).  If I don't enjoy the experience, no matter how much I may like a band, I stop helping their funding.
